What a Difference a Year Makes!

Too much cash! Who would have ever thought this would be a problem? Given how rates for conservative fixed income investments – including CDs, Treasury Bills and all the rest – have risen so dramatically, the pressure to get out of low-yielding money market and savings accounts has risen significantly. Investors who rushed for the exits last year and plowed trillions into money market funds, now around $5 trillion, may be wondering if it’s time to retrace a bit. With so much to talk about and so little time, on today’s show, we’ll discuss what you might want to consider and how to cash in on today’s higher rates. We’ll also discuss how to get attractive income options, and what exactly those are. Heidi will discuss the article “The Five Biggest Mistakes People Make When Picking a Medicare Plan.” How complex can it be? You may be surprised! Last, Deann has the stats to bring as well as to where and how interest rates and the economy are showing up. We look forward to the show and your questions. Tune in and take control!
